First Full Barrel
by RainSaucers Inc. on December 7th, 2010
Four weeks. That's about how long it took to fill one of our 55 gallon test barrels with fresh, free, Northern California Rain Water. It rained about 5 inches during that time and since we had two of our smaller Saucers deployed together (total surface area of 22.5 square feet) things happened rather quickly. But like many folks that harvest rainwater in California we are now wondering what to do next with that 55 gallons since we don't need it for plants right now (it's not the growing season). Yes, we would save it for April when we plant. But it makes more sense to use it now and refill. Its high quality makes it perfect for a lot of in-home uses like laundry, bathing, dish washing, hand washing etc.
